Kallis Kyriacou: One Flew Over The Kyriacou’s Nest

Welcome inside the mind of endearing oddity Kallis Kyriacou.
Half Greek-Cypriot, fully silly, Kallis’ debut hour-in-progress is an uplifting mix of surrealism, storytelling and satire.
A life-enhancing flight of fancy, where omelettes are miracles, dads are monosyllabic and disappointment has never been funner.
Parented by movies, perplexed by reality, Kallis’ unique take on life will have you remembering his name, even if you can’t spell it.
'Kallis is a lovable misanthrope with a weird, hilarious outlook on life. A lot of fun to watch.’ Maria Shehata

Maria Shehata: Hero

After her transatlantic move for love fell apart (embarrassingly quickly), Maria Shehata finds herself starting over with two trash bags full of stuff, a 10k credit card bill, an 83-year-old housemate who never quite remembers who she is, and her parents incessantly asking her when she’s going to find someone to take care of her. This is the hilarious story of Maria’s attempt to be her own hero in making the UK her home.
“A slick, gag driven US approach.” (Chortle). “I love Maria Shehata, she is funny on and off stage.” (Bill Burr)
